On the last day of the Antipolo Media Tour 2019 where I was one of the participating bloggers, we went to Taytay, a municipality in Rizal. We were invited by the staff of Bagpi Garment Center (FB Page) to do a 500-peso challenge. Bagpi is one of the huge inexpensive and affordable stores you can find in the popular shopping spot in Taytay. It is just a couple of hour’s drive from Manila.
The challenge: How many pieces of garments can you buy with Php500?
Each participant was given a red envelope with Php500 in it. With great excitement, we ran towards Bagpi Garment Center as soon as they signaled the beginning of the challenge.
My eyes were brimming when I saw all kinds of garments that I wanted. Women love shopping, don’t we? Going around Bagpi, there’s plenty of garments to choose from. First, I carefully browsed through the tops that are only Php50 each. As soon as I took my pick, I moved on to the next piece of clothing.
My second purchase was a plain maroon turtle neck loose dress that was originally priced at Php120 but I got for only Php 100 because of haggling abilities. The rest of the money, I used for buying a fashionable long skirt for Php150, a one-piece bikini for Php100, and another floral dress for Php100. I got a total of 5 garments with my Php500, I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
After the challenge, we had a chance to meet with the Bagpi Garment Center’s executives over dinner.
“Here at Bagpi Garment Center, the shopping experience is our top priority,” stated Mr. Manny Cruz, President of Bagpi Garment Center “Unlike other shopping areas, we provide safety and convenience for both buyers and tenants,” he added.
In fact, when a customer left her purse in one of the shopping stalls, it was immediately returned to her as the stall owner had kept it until it was claimed. Also, shop owners have permanent stalls in the center, hence shoppers can easily return to the shop in case they lost an important item or if they have any other complaints.
Bagpi Garment Center is well ventilated and has enough space between each stall for shoppers free to hop on.
